Description

solution


Question

What is correlation? Does correlation prove causation? Why or why not? Explain and provide examples to support your explanation.;I need a comment (verify solution) in 25-75 words from the response given below from the question listed above.;Essentially, a correlation exists between two variables when the value of one variable are somehow associated with the values of the other variable. Correlation does not prove causation, causation is a causing or producing an effect. For example, it is often said that ?children where the mother stays at home do better at school (and later in life)?. However because the mother stays home is not the cause of child doing better in school and later in life.;Reference;Mario F. Triola. Elementary Statistics, 11th Ed. Pearson. 2010: CH1, Pg 19
